“It’s a Wonderful Life” Sequel

This morning, I was all set to write on something non-film related like dating or shoes. So I sat down to read my morning paper via internet and came across something interesting, “Sequel to ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Announced.”sally gaspAfter reading THIS, I am at a loss for words.  Fortunately what I lack in verbiage I can express in GIFS.

Are we doing this? A sequel from a movie made like 100 years ago? This just reeks of unoriginality! Is there not ONE scriptwriter out there with a new idea?

How did this pitch meeting go?

Exec: You remember the Christmas movie “It’s a wonderful life”?

Other Exec: No?

Exec: Perfect! Le’ts make a sequel!

Other Exec: You mean a remake?

Exec: Nope, a sequel.

Other Exec: Great! Let’s do it

Le sigh! I.CANNOT.  I give up.

Go ahead. Remake and sequalize (for the purpose of this post sequalize is a word) everything! Let’s just go to the beginning of film history and start over.  Birth of a Nation again, Citizen Cane: Rosebud’s story, His Girl Friday: the weekend edition.  I’m out of energy on this one and apparently so is Hollywood.
